You know, with the exception of one deadly and unpredictable midget, this girl is the smallest cargo I've ever had to transport. Yet by far the most troublesome. Does that seem right to you?

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2013: That Was the Year That Was  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Thanksgivukkahmas, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering. Out you go, 2013!

The lost sheep grow teeth, forsake their lambs, and lie with the lions.

I've got the majority of my giftee's stuff together. I need to buy one more thing, and I may bake some cookies to send.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I've ordered stuff and had it sent to the giftee, and also not used a return address, but have mostly been more of a surprise gifter than a secret one.

Secret Santee, I will get my act together soon! PROMISE!

The feeling you get when your brain finally lets your heart get in its pants.

Me too!

You can be anonymous if you want, but not necessary.

Serendipitously, like the day after SS assignments were made I found exactly what I needed to pull together my gift. I've added a thing or two, and I feel like I want one more thing (or kind of candy, or fancy wrapping) to pull it all together.

This is unusual for me (as Scola could attest - it took me until his birthday to get the perfect gift together. In my defense, I had found something perfect and then he posted that he'd gotten it. But it was not well done of me.) I'm so excited to be (planning to) send off well before Xmas.

And if anyone needs a pinch hitter, or a contributor, or a red herring if you want to be anony - let me know. Buffista SS is a highlight of my holiday season.

I can never remember how to do that.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

I'm not participating in the SS, but I love to read along and see what everyone gets. Buffistas are the best gift givers.

Amy, I think you need an s? Edit: Yes, it should be "hearts"
